Were the Doors Locked?

Vehicle break-ins are nearly epidemic in some parts of Sacramento.  It is so common to see shattered glass next to a parked car that often vehicle owners will leave their doors unlocked with the hope that they can avoid a window repair bill.  What citizens may not be aware of is that currently, the law in California is that burglary only occurs when a thief enters a vehicle with locked doors.  A shattered window does not provide evidence that the vehicle’s doors were locked, and therefore the harsher charge of burglary may not apply.  This loophole may render law enforcement unable to charge thieves with anything other than vandalism or petty theft.  Senator Scott Wiener is attempting to close the “broken window burglary loophole.”

One the other hand, when people reach the suburbs and rural areas, they will quickly realize just how dangerous the darkness can be. Headlight problems on these roads can significantly increase the risk of an auto accident.
